The HP DECnet SNA Gateway for Channel Transport is similar to
the HP SNA Domain Gateway-CT but without the 3270 interactive
access to HP applications or the TCP/IP support.
The HP DECnet SNA Gateway for Channel Transport (Gateway-CT) is
a Physical Unit Type 2 (PU2) gateway that consists of a dedicated
high-speed, high-capacity hardware device, the DEC ChannelServer
II (DESNB), which connects directly to the IBM S/370 channel gateway
and provides DECnet users access to IBM SNA mainframe systems. It
supports a wide variety of access routines connecting OpenVMS and
PCs (in a DECnet network) to IBM mainframes. The Gateway-CT connects
directly to an IBM S/370 channel.
HP DECnet SNA gateway-CT software is down-line
loaded into the DEC ChannelServer II. The HP DECnet SNA gateway
management software, installed on the load host and other systems,
configures and manages the Gateway-CT.
Software media and online documentation for the
OpenVMS load and management host are supplied as part of the OpenVMS
Alpha and VAX Software Product Libraries and Online Documentation
Libraries on CD-ROM.
